Abstract

Evolutionary Extreme Learning Machine (E-ELM) is frequently much more efficient than traditional gradient-based algorithms for the parameter identification of feedforward neural networks. In particular, E-ELM is usually faster and provides a higher trade-off between accuracy and model simplicity. For that reason, this paper shows that an E-ELM that is based on Particle Swarm Optimisation (PSO) and Extreme Learning machine (ELM) can be extended to the Interval Type-2 Radial Basis Function Neural Network (IT2-RBFNN) with a Karnik-Mendel type-reduction layer. To evaluate the efficiency of E-ELM, the IT2-RBFNN is used as an Interval Type-2 Fuzzy Logic System (IT2 FLS) for the modelling of two popular benchmark data sets and for the prediction of chaotic time series. According to our results, E-ELM applied to the IT2-RBFNN not only outperforms adaptive-gradient-based algorithms and provides a better generalisation compared to other existing IT2 fuzzy methodologies, but similarly to pure fuzzy models, the IT2-RBFNN is also able to preserve some model interpretation and transparency.
